Infusion Therapy & Chemotherapy

Back To Cancer

Infusion therapy is a key component of any cancer treatment plan. At Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, we ensure comfort, consistency and continuity by taking an innovative approach to infusion therapy that ties together the inpatient and outpatient aspects of care. Our infusion therapy professionals are certified to administer both chemotherapy and biotherapy, cross-trained to provide care in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and experienced in oncology nursing. Therefore, all patients receive the same standard of care from a familiar team of IV infusion therapy specialists throughout their cancer care journey.

Infusion Therapy Services

Banner MD Anderson’s suite of IV infusion therapy services includes:

  • Blood transfusions
  • Central line care
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hydration
  • Injections
  • IV antibiotic therapy
  • Stem cell reinfusion

Infusion therapy costs will vary based on the treatment chosen. Infusion services will generally be provided between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. However, hours may vary to meet the needs of our patients.

Chemotherapy Education

At Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, we want to ensure that our patients are educated about the chemotherapy treatment they may be receiving and the side effects that might come with it.

These films teach about cancer, chemotherapy and side effect management. They will help you learn how chemotherapy works and offer helpful tips for taking care of common side effects such as low blood counts, nausea, vomiting, mouth sores and more.

We would like both the patient and caregiver to watch each chapter of this video separately. If you have any questions, please ask any member of your health care team.
